high. what do you expect out of cvs with this environment you're talking about. >> well, we like the stock fair number of reasons. i think it's the right stock for the environment. we're in an environment where i don't think we're going to see tremendous growth because of the economy so companies that can grow their earnings at double-digit levels will be in favor. cvs is one of those companies. they're also giving you revenue growth. you get a little bit of a dividend, raising your dividend. earlier at 30%, and the stock is still a reasonable value trading at 13 times 2013 estimates. it's a stock that's also a play on obamacare and health care going forward. >> tom: give us 30 seconds on f.i.t.b., another one you're putting money to work for and it has really nicely. >> it has. we're seeing better scores in our models. you get a yield of about 2.5%. the stock is cheap at 10 times earnings. they're buying back over 10% of their shares. there's been insider being in the stock in recent months. i think there's a lot to like. i think the earnings story is improving. and, again, i th

's one of the characteristics of most addicts. narrator: environment is also an important element in determining the risk for addiction. dr. mccaul: because it's not like other genetically-affected illnesses that will express, to some extent independently of the person's behavior, or how the person interacts with their environment. this problem is very uniquely dependent on how the person interacts with their environment. if they don't expose themselves to the agent at risk, to the alcohol or to the drug, they'll never develop the disorder. narrator: the fact that drugs are so prevalent in our society just increases the environmental risk of exposure. poverty and drugs seem to be partners. wherever there is a lull in the environment or the economy, it looks like drugs just come in-- the use of drugs, the ability-- drugs just come in. you can go to any community that is not of color, and it will take you blocks to find liquor stores. in our community, and this is mostly people of color-- i've seen this also in the california-- mexican-american, texas-- there's a liquor store on eve

, i learned on the campaign trail. there's always a winner and loser. the political environment just like the business world, is highly competitive. with every campaign season there's always a new crop of start-ups. innovation incubators. and so, i guess the campaign is a little bit of an entrepreneurial showcase. i think a lot of us think we see these ads and i guess keeping the campaign is disliked a big marketing machine that spits out the ads we see on tv and the candidates are sending mail to us an e-mail to our in box and the phone calls and so forth. but if you peel back the curtain, you might find something. a something difference you find a very complex, highly detailed operation. there's a million things happening at once. there are things happening around the candidates, there are things happening around the headquarters operations, things happening in field offices. everything from where a candidate will stay, who will stand with the candidates, what site he should choose for that and how many people should come to the event and right down to the helium in the balloons an

, by getting a much more sensible regulatory environment and, yes, repealing obamacare. these are the burdens that we've got to remove. >> moderator: now time for our closing statements, and by the order of the coin toss, congressman cantor goes first. cantor: you know, i think what you've seen tonight is certainly a robust discussion, and, um, a debate though, frankly, that has been peppered, unfortunately, with what is wrong with politics today. and that is just a rash of personal attacks, indirect attacks on my family, and as we saw repetitive disregard for honesty and truth. and the thing is, none of these negative attacks do anything to create a job, do anything to educate a child or do anything to bring down the deficit. but attempts at attacks and character assassination the way that mr. powell's been about tonight, frankly, make it a lot harder to solve problems, to compromise, to sit down and actually get something done. but i think that, mr. powell, you underestimate the decency of the voters of the seventh district, and i've had the privilege of representing this district for almos
to control our preferences. we are victims of our environments growing up. we are victims of our context that we live in and, therefore, we all, you know, are not "responsible for that behavior and therefore should be mitigating." when you look at the testimony that comes in, whether it's from a mother or from neighbors or from teachers that are talking about really mitigating circumstances, they are the rotten social background kind of arguments, the abuse and the suffering that that individual experienced and those things show up in the brain. the brain is also a sponge. the brain isn't simply created by genetics and it's very much shaped by environment. and so my mentor john monaghan likened the problem of predicting violent people to predicting violent storms. when you think of meteorology, you think of the difficulty of classifying a hurricane and tracking a hurricane, making judgments about such complex behavior that has sort of chaotic premises underlying it, you're going to make lots of mistakes. you're going to make lots of mistakes in both directions. sometimes you're going to
environment providing a safe and nurturing atmosphere for the families. we feel that the families progress through the program living life on life's terms because they experience everyday living. they take care of their children. they cook for their children. they get their children up to go to school. so the benefit of being in a one-shop model where everything is onsite is such a benefit to the families. i think, overall, the families here at the exodus program respond really well to just the genuine concern that our staff displays to them on a day-to-day basis. one of the things that we try to do as early on as possible is to try to have our clients develop a real positive support system. whether it be through church, through meetings, through other peers that are here at the program, reconnecting with their family members. i think that's definitely the first step. well, having a place to live and being around other families that are like ours is very helpful because i feel like we get to help each other. and it's not just me getting help. i see that i am not alone. i enjoy that all of

and my environment and to me the value of the local and about the city and i am partial to the urban environment. i love it and that is why a study of. i went to public schools my whole life and it was from the teacher who said hey you might like doing this and spent time after school and they introduce me to an excellent opportunity or someone who sat after school with me and went through different topic source said i didn't understand it might debate coach in high school not being paid to spend but spent an extra six hours per week coaching. these are all things that i found made the character of my life and they all happened not by way of some sort of large institutions not by way of -- that was my local experience and what i found in a very homely city and you hear the characterization of cities or urban environments as you get lost and this has not been my experience and this is not what the local represents of returning to what i find to be the salient theme is that cities and local politics and local institutions are really fit on the greatest opportunity. you can truly access
of cisco, having the experience that you've had at yahoo! tell me how you see the environment changes and where specifically you would expect growth to happen in technology in the next five years. >> well, i think technology in general -- probably the biggest challenge is not so much the social interactions but everybody's talking so much about data. data is very, very hard to mine correctly. so i think you're going to see a push back towards a lot of enterprise apps that really figure out how it get information to the companies so they can actually be more personalized for the user, but easy to say, a lot to do. >> and really quick, on what you're seeing out there, how tough is europe right now for technology? what are you seeing in terms of the global slow down? >> well, europe continues to baffle us in general in technology. it looks like it's getting softer, not stronger. you know, companies that diversified over the past 20 years do make sure they had good portfolios in all the regions, you know, are taking a hit now with europe. i think it's broad based, so it shouldn't be a kno
at the international trading environment and worry about that. this is the answer to your question. a world and which the united states is strong but all of the institutions is eroding is not a world of 2011. the united states has an interest in trying its best to shore up institutions. >> this is great. >> get set to run it, john. >> a couple of quick points. my thesis is not the institutions are independent. they are instruments of power. they are used to signal limits on power. power is never divorce from institution. a venture that regard, i idea that the united states has been so brilliant for half a century or longer because, it has allowed it to make the power more durable and expensive but also making it more delimited and less based on arbitrary use of power and the most traditional sense. there are a vehemence of republican allow for the state to be more influential by allowing it to signal its own strength. a couple of more point about this. my underlying argument is that we are shifting from one organized around trilateral world, the u.s. rip germany, japan, the kind of trilateral system.
clients, the environment you want to stay is diversified as possible. i think this last quarter was a great example of that. europe, everybody looks at the negative in europe, yet it was a good place to be. spread your bets out right now. >> so do you expect that we are at this point going to see pretty good guidance, tough guidance? what about that guidance that you're looking for in. >> yeah, i think that's going to be the big question here. i think today's a great example of that. you have alcoa, the traditional capital goods manufacturing cyclical versus a yum brands, which is going to tell you maybe how the global consumer is doing. even the guidance we're going to get today may very well set the tone for what kind of messaging we get this earnings season. >> i want to tell you that alcoa is out three cents a share, actual earnings. expecting a flat showing. so it looks like it's better than expected. we are looking at a pop in the stock as these numbers are released. of course, we want to get more details on the quarter. revenue coming in at $5.8 billion versus an estimate
with the fact that we're in, to put it lightly, a highly unusual climate and environment right now with long-term interest rates being held at 0% for quite some time. >> well, one of the ironies and one of the sad elements of glad path and target date strategies today is they are pushing people more and more heavily into bond at a time when bond yields with more negative. you're not making money, you're losing money by investing more and more in bonds. so we wind up becoming enablers of bad behavior in washington and supporters of that bad behavior by buying more and more of the bond when yields are negative. >> bob, have you a wonderful reputation and a great record built around the idea that you turn conventional wisdom inside out, whether it's fundamental indexing or this assault on the conventional thinking in target date funds. but i wonder what the real risk to the fund business is if these target date funds -- which certainly imply that you're going to have a set amount of money on a certain date. what if they don't work out and what should the assumptions be if i'm an investor on wha
to be in this high-risk, high-profile tense environment? nobody loves that. >> no but i think certain people rise to the level of the performance. bill clinton you always got the feeling that he was very happy to be there. >> jennifer: it makes me smile thinking about it. you also say that governor rom any has a few of these flaws as well. he could be overly cautious he lacks spontaneity. he appears awkward and whiny. and he might be boring. if you were comparing the flaws of either one of those, which would you rather be? >> i think i would rather be obama. however, i do think they are fairly evenly matched. and in some ways there are similarities. i see both men as being men more about the intellectual side of things and not the emotional side of things. nay are both a little bit aloof. but the clip we looked at where mitt romney loses it about the rules, that was the most impassioned we have seen that. but isn't it interesting he is not getting passionate out of issues, he is getting passionate because he feels like somebody is cheating him out of his time. >> jennifer: exa
